Correlations are very relevant in NFL DFS, as we like to pair up quarterbacks with their top receiving options. While the running back and defense stack is not as high of an upside stack as using a passing game, it is still viable with the right plays around it, and still brings a small correlation of upside. Game stacks can often be overlooked, but why wouldn't you want exposure to the team trying to keep up or chasing your favorite passing offense? There are ways to be contrarian by still targeting a top offense projected with higher ownership. Shifting from the popular WR1 to a WR2, TE, or even RB is going to help you get exposure at slightly less ownership. WR1, RB1, WR2, and TE1 in that order stand the highest chances of generating the most fantasy points in a stack. This is at least for two man stacks. We will dive into more multiplayer stacks below. Volume, Vegas, opposing defensive stats, pace, and pricing are all calculated into my stacks below. You will find my top, value, contrarian, and game stacks within the article. You can find me on Twitter at @JGuilbault11 to help with the week's slate, or questions/comments about the article.

Seattle Seahawks

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Russell WilsonQB$8,600$7,100
Tyler LockettWR$7,500$7,500
DK MetcalfWR$6,700$5,700

The Seattle stack was lackluster last week, but it is time to go back to the well at home against Tampa Bay. I will leave out Chris Carson as the Buccaneers are stout against the run, and should force the Seahawks to throw a bit more here. Volume aside, it is still a great spot for the passing attack that just added Josh Gordon. He won't play this week, so it helps that this will be the last week where it is a bit easier to narrow down the volume. Tampa Bay is allowing 25.4 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, which is the 6th highest in the league. The Bucs are also allowing the 7th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers.

Detroit Lions

Matthew StaffordQB$7,900$6,800
TJ HockensonTE$5,000$3,700
Kenny GolladayWR$7,600$7,700
Marvin JonesWR$5,700$6,000

The Lions were a stack last week and had a strong performance. They will go on the road this week to Oakland, who are an easy team to target through the air. Given the run game is shaky without Kerryon Johnson, I would look for more through the air. This is also a solid game stack, because Detroit's defense isn't much better right now. You can certainly round out this stack with Tyrell Williams or Darren Waller. As far as the Lions go, Kenny Golladay is coming off a big week. Oakland has allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Marvin Jones and Golladay are both prime options. Jones price on DK isn't quit the same value as it is over on FD. TJ Hockenson has been a bust most weeks, but if you are looking for a cheap dart throw, Oakland is allowing the third most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends.

Green Bay Packers

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Aaron RodgersQB$8,100$6,900
Aaron JonesRB$7,700$7,000
Davante AdamsWR$8,000$7,100

Green Bay's offense continues to roll, and will take on a sluggish Chargers defense. Davante Adams is back, and I am curious if people are going to hesitate to play him. He isn't at a bad price, and is one hell of an upgrade from who Rodgers has been throwing to lately. Fire away with Adams in tournaments, and this is more of a tournament stack. The Chargers defense may look like it doesn't allow a lot of fantasy points to quarterbacks, but that is because they have played mostly below average ones. When they faced Brissett, Stafford, and Watson, they all put up strong numbers. Josh Rosen, Joe Flacco, Develin Hodges, and Mitch Trubisky, not so much. Aaron Jones has been cruising, and has huge upside. The Chargers have allowed 21 points per game to running backs this season.
